I’ve been crushing on my coworker for months. And now he’s moving… across the country. I’ve got one shot to make my move. We’re all holed up in this amazing house upstate and tonight I’m going to sneak into his room and finally Make. Something. Happen.
So I go for it. I climb into Luke’s bed and the kissing is so much better than I imagined. Why did we wait so long to feel this? I moan his name and Bam! He jumps out of bed. WTF? It isn’t Luke. It’s his twin, Noah. I don’t even like Noah. And he certainly doesn’t like me.
This will NEVER happen again…until the next day against the barn door. Why can’t I stop seeing him? It will never work. We’re complete opposites. Enemies with benefits is a thing, right?
But what happens when I start to want more?
Each book in the Accidental Love series can be read as a standalone.
I love that the premise for all of these books is one person accidentally getting into the “wrong” bed with the person who ends up being exactly right for them. It sounds like it shouldn’t, but it totally works!
Wrong Bed, Right Brother was a cute and fun read, and I really liked Noah and Amanda. Their enemies to lovers vibes were fun–we didn’t get a ton of explanation for why they didn’t like each other for the first three years, beyond each felt their relationship with Luke (Noah’s twin and Amanda’s coworker bestie/crush) was threatened by the other, but once they got over the not liking each other thing? Break out the fans, because these two were hot together!
A lot of this story was told inside the main characters’ heads–I didn’t mind at all, though, because Ms Brooks laced their thoughts with all kinds of snark that made me LOL more than once. There might even have been some reading out loud of funny bits to my 23-year-old while he drove to get takeout–I’m sure he 100% appreciated it; how could he not? 😉
I was less than impressed with Luke’s character throughout, though–he was supposed to be Amanda’s friend, and he seemed to get more pleasure out of stringing her along (her crush on him was not particularly subtle, it’s true) than of being an actual friend to her, and the things he says to both of them when he discovers their secret were hurtful. i get that he was hurt by the secrecy, but way to make it all about you, dude! He comes around in the end, but geesh…
I have to give Amanda props for her grand gesture–it’s definitely not one that I could do, but more power to her. I’m a bit bummed that he didn’t have to do more to bring about their reconciliation–he was just as much at fault as she was, there–but watching him help her succeed at…that thing she was doing while declaring her love (nope, I’m not going to tell you what it was! Read it yourself and see) was a lot of fun.
Somehow I missed book 3 of the series ( Wrong Bed, Right Man ), so I guess I know what the next book on my TBR is going to be… 🙂
Rating: 4 stars / A-
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
About the author:
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them.
She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.
She likes outdoorsy guys with both muscle and heart and independent women ready to try something new.
